Corporate Engagement Opportunities
Join Us in the Gardens
Ecosource works to increase access to fresh, healthy food for communities in need. Every year, we grow and donate over 1,500 pounds of fresh produce to local food banks. And we couldn’t do it without you, our local business community!
Our Corporate Engagement program is designed to engage up to 30 employees in fun, social and physical activities at our 15,000 square-foot Iceland Teaching Garden. (For smaller groups, we sometimes have opportunities available at other community garden locations.) We offer full or half-day seasonal activities.
- At our Iceland Teaching Garden (705 Matheson Blvd East), we require a minimum of 10 participants and a maximum of 30. (We may be able to customize an activity for smaller groups at other community garden locations.)
- There is no cost to participate, however we encourage companies to consider making a donation to support our staff time and charitable programming. Charitable tax receipts are available for all corporate and individual donors.
- Tasks require some physical fitness (some more than others, for example, moving soil).
For employee engagement opportunities, please call Britt McKee at 905-274-6222 ext. 304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Staff from the Greater Toronto Airports Authority recently volunteered their time in the Iceland Teaching Garden. The Human Resources & Corporate Services Departments said, “It was a truly rewarding experience to embrace the challenging work and come together to realize the impact that a small Toronto Pearson team can make in the community in just a few short hours. The team is looking forward to going back in the spring!”
